The facilities themselves were good, enjoyed a few games of pool and made use of the Wi-Fi, very helpful guy on reception who pointed us to a great bar down the beach for dinner and a beer. We were in an ensuite double accessed from outside. There is no door to the bathroom which means the room itself is a... More

If you are passing through PE is a simple and nice place to stay one or two nights. Good location. Good staff. Good price. During the winter seasons it would be very welcome a heat at the room, Fortunatly one extra blanket could solve the problem.

We were very happy with our stay. Facilities are great and service is good. Just a reminder that this is a more self catering accommodation so you will need your own food, towels, soaps, shampoo etc. Cutlery and crockery is there. Convenient area and quick to all the main routes. Ample safe parking. Enjoy your time at Island Vibe. Worth... More

Very nice place for a get away. Home away from home feel. Location is good. Service is one of the best around. Some entertainment activies on the premises as well to help pass time and you don't have to leave the premises if you don'y want to.

Arrived here on my own with an incredibly warm welcome from the staff. As I had no plans for the weekend Luba and max offered to take me out for dinner where they showed me the local townships and the amazing culture. The next morning Luba dropped us off at a nice restaurant for breakfast then later returned and gave... More

It was comfortable staying at these lodgings, i was only there a short time but everything was ok, i would suggest they heat the spa pool for people to use early in the day as it takes a good 5 hours to heat & in winter is good to have.

The warm reception and assistance was awesome as I arrived late in the evening. My room was beautiful, it felt like I was in a five star hotel. I slept super comfortable with the beach humming softly in the background. The showers, reception and rooms in general are amazingly clean. I loved my over night stay here, it was worth... More

Judging from past reviews I wasn’t sure what to expect at Island Vibe. I travel often but would not describe myself as a backpacker type person having “been there done that” in years past. I found the rooms to be very comfortable and well appointed for the price. The living areas are good. Theirs a big tv lounge and dining... More

Island Vibe Port Elizabeth is almost like staying in a home rather than a typical backpackers - although with a bit more style and fun. There is an indoor waterfall that I enjoyed reading next to. There is also a hot tub that was great fun in the evening and a lovely pool in the back to enjoy in the... More

On walking distance to Port Elizabeth prettiest beaches you can find Island Vibe’s amazing beach lodge. Not too big and with an amazing vibe. The private rooms are pretty and clean, the beds are good and there is a big kitchen area to cook nice dinners. After a day of awesome activities or sightseeing in the area you can choose... More
